Hello All,
My name is Megan, but people call me Meggie.

I am a professionally trained Classical singer, with some rock/metal/goth influences. I have a degree in Music Studies, with a concentration in Classical Voice. For 2 of those yrs I also studied Music Education.

I would love to do back up vocals or lead vocals for a goth/opera/rock/metal band; like Evanescence, Nightwish, Tarja Turnen, and Sarah Brightman. I am a really dedicated person and would love to colaborate. I can write vocal lines and also lyrics. However, I'd be more than willing to learn electric bass if that is needed as well. I have been performing for many years, although its been mostly in the opera/theater genera. I was in a band for three 1/2 months, but then was let go due to the bands change of style in music.
So as you can see, I am new to the singing in a band gig. However, I would hope that the band I'd be with would not mind working with me.

Below is a list of my experiences and performances:
